Fukushima sea food “safe” for eating
June 23, 2012
The prefectural federation of fisheries co-operative associations announced on Saturday that three kinds of test samples it chose showed radiation levels lower than detectable by radioscope.
This is the first test of any sea food samples from the area since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in March of last year.
The octopus and shellfish will be boiled and processed before being sold at supermarkets in the city next week.
The fishery federation plans to conduct another round of fishing before the end of the month to sell catches in Tokyo and other major markets, if possible.
